  1. In a large pot, heat the butter and oil over medium/high heat. Place the roast in the pot and sear it on all sides until well browned. Remove the roast and set aside.
  2. In the same pot, saute the onions for 5 minutes, scraping loose the brown roast bits on the bottom of the pot. Add the garlic and pepper and saute for 1 minute. Return the meat to the pot and pour in the coffee and add the mushrooms.
  3. Over high heat, bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 hours, turning the meat over halfway through the cooking time. A slow cooker may be used for cooking the roast, if desired.
  4. To make the gravy: When the roast is done, remove it from the pot. Take 1/2 cup of the coffee sauce mixture from the pot and stir in the cornstarch to make a slurry. Mix well. Return the slurry to the pot, stirring until the sauce thickens slightly. Stir in the sour cream then salt to taste.

This was an amazing recipe. I was curious but skeptical about using coffee, but it turned out to be great. I used one and half cup of espresso (about 6-7 shots?) plus two cups of water. I did...

Delicious. Very moist and flavorful. Followed suggestions on reducing amount of coffee to 4 cups and adding 2 cups of water. My husband and I really enjoyed this. Thanks for the recipe.

Since so many reviewers said this recipe was bland, I added 1t Durkee Steak Seasoning; 1/2t ea cajun seasoning & rosemary; 1/4t ea thyme, red pepper flakes & cayenne; then 3/4c red wine & 1/4c s...

This was a pretty good recipe, I added beef broth instead of the boullion cubes others had suggested, and I used some rosemary, thyme and a little oregano too (1 tsp ea) you don't have to like c...

I was also skeptical of the coffee addition. I loosely followed what kimshin2000 did-added water,soy sauce, thyme and oregano, as I did not have beef broth or any wine (terrible situation!) It r...

Judging from the fact that when I got to the dish at pot luck, it was empty, I think this must have been a pretty good recipe. I'm glad I tasted it before I took it. It was great! Thanks.

This recipe was wonderful! Very flavorful and easy! I followed the tips from the other reviewers and added beef broth, red wine and less coffee (but very strong coffee) and loved it!

This was the worst pot roast that I have ever tasted.. gravy wise. The meat was pretty much OK. I tried to correct it, to no avail. It was bitter, and just totally off. I have tried many recipe...
